"I call bulls---. I call turbo bulls--- on that", Oliver said. And if you don't, it's no longer on Trump. Trump posted last week, after sharing his version of his conversations with Comey in an NBC interview with Lester Holt. Along with Trump's claim that Comey told him he wasn't under investigation, Trump admitted that Comey's firing was in part because of the FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with Russian Federation. Oliver replied to Trump. It must have been someone much stronger and smarter with a much hotter daughter, ' and before they finished that sentence, Trump would be yelling, 'I did it! "Oliver asked incredulously. "'I was thinking of the Russian Federation investigation when I fired Comey' is the one thing that you are NOT supposed to say out loud". While firing Comey in the letter, Trump just has to mention that Comey had informed him "on three separate occasions" that he wasn't under FBI investigation. It's the kind of response that makes you ask three questions. "And it's entirely possible the answer to all three questions are yes". Oliver also noted Rosenstein - in light of Sessions' supposed recusal from anything having to do with Russian Federation - could "appoint a special counsel within the Justice Department", or what is most often referred to as a "special prosecutor." Sen.

Oliver went on to talk about how the White House spent the week offering explanations for Comey's dismissal, including that Trump acted on the advice of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who'd only been in the position about two weeks. "When you've got the presidential equivalent of a 5-year-old sh***ing on the salad bar of a Ruby Tuesdays, at some point you stop blaming the 5-year-old, and you start blaming the people who aren't stopping him".
